I like the composition of this image - it caught my eye. For what it is worth however,it is my opinion that it would have looked better had you used a polarising filter and and possibly an ND filter when you shot it.You would then have got a much better defined and striking sky. However there are ways of getting the same effect with the gradient tool if you have Photoshop. It could also have stood being just a little moire saturated overall. I have noticed that, because the images we upload on here are so compressed, it can make otherwise good exposures look washed out. It has done it to one of mine so I have resolved to bump up the saturation a little more in future to hopefully avoid that.

Thanks for the comments which were greatefully received. I did use a polarising filter but I guess my novice attempts using it were probably not correct.
Thanks for the advice Dionne. Will take these on board.

Hi Mick
Thanks for your vote on my seascape. If I recall correctly I used 2x ND filters as well as the polarizing filter for this image but I think I did that because I could not get the slower shutter speed of .25 of a second I wanted for the movement of the sea. You did not need a slow shutter speed on your photo but either you did not have the polarizing filter around the right way (some like mine are very difficult to tell, or it could have done with at least one ND filter as well as the polarizer. If the sky is very light, try it. This is the first time I did that and it is one of the best I have taken. I have to say it looks a lot better when viewed larger and less compressed and looks lovely as my desktop wallpaper! I could not send you a private message as you are a new member but when you are able send me a message let me know when you have tried it. I would be very interested to hear and also see to the results! I wish you luck!
